i do believe that the tournament committee has secretly been trying to put together matchups that disadvantage the mid-major (and lower) teams... the big name teams with their big alumni bring in the big bucks. just look at how the at large bids have shrunk of late.



anyhoo... i'm 15-1 in my espn bracket, which puts me in the 99.4th percentile, which sounds pretty damned good until you find out that the 99.4th percentile puts you in 25,543rd place.

I picked North Dakota State to upset Kansas.

They probably won't win, but they are hanging in there.

They gave it their best shot, also the Utah St. picks looked good for awhile. Basically 3 good games out of the 4 earlies so far.

19-1

I'm 18-2 right now. I'm always good in the first round, though.

That Pitt/ETSU game is close. Personally, I'd like to see them fall, but my bracket would like to see them win.

Either way, 22 out of 24 picks is very impressive.

Right now I'm dead last in the Interference challenge, and probably dead last in all the other pools I entered, but I have 14 of my sweet 16 teams still alive. So I guess I'm still chillin.

C'monnnn Arizona and USC. I need ya.

19-5. I'll take it I guess. Lost WV from my Elite Eight, but other than that no Sweet teams. I'm alright.

So with all this talk of the ACC and Big East, thus far the most impressive conference is clearly the Big 12 at 6-0.

That's the thing...with 14 of your 16 alive you should be good. I'm going to have a problem because I had Oklahoma and Kansas getting picked off, so as they advance more of my picks will bite the dust.

11-5, Obama-esque yesterday, 8-0, Hewson-esque thus far today. (Yay Dayton)
